What’s New at Disneyland in July

(Paul Hiffmeyer/Disneyland)

  • D23 Expo takes over Anaheim July 14, 15, 16. See our D23 Prep article for more info.
  • July 17 is the official birthday of Disneyland and the re-opening of Fantasmic!; expect larger crowds on that day.
  • July 29th Mark Twain Riverboat, Sailing Ship Columbia, Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes return to Rivers of America. Disneyland Railroad also opens.
  • Tickets for Mickey’s Halloween Party go on sale this month. Read more here.
  • Cooling down is essential during the hot summer months. You’ll want one of these water misting fans (and it’s cheaper than buying in the parks!) for your Disneyland trip.
  • Still need a hotel? See where we recommend you cool down at Disneyland’s top water park hotels.
